News: MDC Unveils Sculpture in Honor of Operation Pedro Pan

Enrique Martínez Celaya and MDC President Dr. Eduardo J. Padrón stand in front of the sculpture.

Miami Dade College and its Museum of Art + Design today dedicated The Tower of Snow just outside MDC’s Freedom Tower. This is a large-scale bronze sculpture created by Cuban-born artist Enrique Martínez Celaya that honors the 50th anniversary of Operation Pedro Pan, which brought thousands of Cuban children, without their parents, to the United States in pursuit of freedom and stability.

“The children of Pedro Pan arrived here alone. The sculpture you’re about to see is dedicated to them, for their loneliness, for their exile and their hope,” said Martínez Celaya.
